    Pros

    Flexible schedule, fun people, good food so easy to promote, great co workers

    Cons

    Waitresses and waiters by nature of the job cannot get a 40 hour or full time schedule. Therefore they cannot qualify for benefits. Not everyone is a student w a part time job. Some of us need benefits. Also, geez..... more consistency in Management. too many manager changes. Makes for an unstable feeling work environment. Favoritism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't move managers from store to store so frequently, post schedules earlier than the night before

  2. Horrible place to work

    Pros

    I was given a flexible schedule and the training was good. The other employees were usually pretty helpful and the upper level management was around more than I would have expected.

    Cons

    Servers had to do work that often took away from the guests' experience (like prepping our own salads and desserts to order). Quite often, I had to work split shifts and lived to far away to go home or to do anything in between.

    Advice to Management

    The employee discount program is almost useless to be honest.

    Pros

    The use of Hot Schedules is always convenient for requesting time off. Not as uptight as other corporate restaurants.

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low amongst staff. All floor managers are inexperienced. There is no structured training program resulting in incompetent employees. Large gap in skill levels among serving staff and bartenders. Poorly managed FOH.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new Director of Operations. Update and refine current hiring process. Develop a better training program for new managers.

    Pros

    We made some great food, good hours and decent pay. There was room for advancement plus locations around the world.

    Cons

    I worked at a franchise store as opposed to a corporate store so things were a lot different than they would have been in a corporate store.

    It is a company looking to make a turnaround so there are plenty of challenges

    Give everyone ownership of their process and invite them to bring ideas to the table. I appreciated the opportunities that I got for this.
